Going to the Caladium Festival in Lake Placid is something I look forward to doing every year. The sign states that Lake Placid is: "America's Most Interesting Town" because they were awarded that title by Readers Digest for 2013.
Lake Placid is the Caladium capital in Florida. I'm a newcomer to the Caladium fancy. Mine is probably one of very few houses here in the Village that doesn't have Caladiums growing in abundance. I have one large pot but that will soon be changing. Instead of buying a pot of caladiums, I got 2 bags of bulbs.
One bag is labeled: "Florida Sweetheart" and the other one is"Mixed". Wondering what that will turn out to be? I'll be busy planting them this week.
Ginny & Doris went with me to the Festival.
Here's what the "Florida Sweetheart" bulbs will grow up to be!
and here's a sample of some of those in the "mixed" bag!
